CHARLIE COMPANIES shares BTS for NFL Network ID’S!

CHARLIE COMPANIES shows how they created their new NFL Network ID’s in this video below.  Using Cinema 4D, they seemed to have camera mapped a flat image (after cutting it up in Photoshop) onto 3D geometry and added a bone system for some slight movement.  The key to this technique is to not travel to far on an angle one way or the other, or you will start to see the imperfections of a flat image being wrapped around geometry.  Very well done, love the breakdown!

Check out this compilation of shows and movies that you may not have realized used green screen.  Nowadays in our industry, if done well you can save a ton on your budget by using green screen properly, like creating an entire film that takes place in Alaska…in Massachusetts.  Hope this gets you thinking.

VIEWPOINT CREATIVE shares the new promo for the SHOWTIME and 60 MINUTES merger!  I personally worked on this job, creating the animation, modeling and some of the compositing.  It was a challenge for us to break open that iconic 60 Minutes clock, and make it interesting inside but keeping that Showtime feel.  Check it out below!

WETA DIGITAL is back again, this time with the incredible film, The Hobbit.  If you are like me, you probably spent most of your time during the movie trying to figure out how everything was done.  I had assumed Andy Serkis (motion capture actor for Gollum) had also done the Pale Orc which indeed he did.  Watch below (from cgmeetup) to see a breakdown of how WETA made the Pale Orc, The Goblin King and Gollum come to life!
